From time to time, we have a key volunteer position open up that we would like to fill right away. We’ll post those needs here.

CSA Volunteer Opportunities

We are interested in seeing other sites similar to the central Benicia CSA drop site grow in cities throughout Solano County. Do you already manage a CSA site and would like to expand? Or are you looking to bring a CSA site to your neighborhood? You can do it and we can help! If interested, please email volunteer@sustainablesolano.org.
